Celebrate the season with family and friends at the 45th annual Christmas Revels – a joyous theatrical celebration filled with music, dance, comedy and carols. Every year, The Christmas Revels travels to a different time and place. This year, join us as we take an exhilarating journey to the ancient Celtic nation of Wales.

Set in a village not too different from the one described in Dylan Thomas’s A Child’s Christmas in Wales, this year's show takes a leap into the past to access the world of Celtic legend and song. We'll spin tales of shape-changers and dragons, of ghostly white horses and of the little wren, king of the birds, enjoy rich Welsh anthems, wild border Morris dancing, a traditional Mummers play, and plenty of audience participation, a Revels hallmark.

Our 2015 edition also includes many Revels touchstones audiences have grown to love over the years including Susan Cooper’s classic poem, The Shortest Day, The Sussex Mummers Carol, sung with the audience at the end of every Christmas Revels, the ancient and mysterious Abbots Bromley Horn Dance and, our signature piece, The Lord of the Dance, which is sure to have you dancing in the aisles! $13 and up.
